Nassau County Executive Laura Curran has recently launched a book club for young readers, “Laura’s Book Club.” The book club will include monthly book suggestions for young adults and children. County Executive Curran will announce her book pick of the month on her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and right here.
“My mission is for Laura’s Book Club to encourage young people to disconnect from technology, step away from the screens and enjoy a book,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran. “I also hope this program encourages residents to visit their public libraries and take advantage of the free services they offer beyond book rentals.”
Public libraries offer free membership to residents which comes with services such as book and video rentals, workshops and seminars, access to online research databases and even discounted admission tickets to museums and attractions across New York.
